No one has ever known what Android N will be named after and we’re not likely to know for some time. As we initially heard about Android M at Google I/O last year, nobody ever thought that it was going to be called Marshmallow until later. Expect to witness similar happening this year.
Android N leaks and rumours
Much has been discussed about whether Android N will ditch the established app tray. Providing a glimpse at a tray-less Android OS, it was suggested by an Oscars-night Google ad that this might be the case, but we’ve heard quite long that this was just a rough mock-up.
More persuasive has been the first screenshots and news of an early build of Android N – more exclusively, the quick settings menu and notification of the latest operating system.
Right from inception, Android has at all times had the best notifications, and that doesn’t seem to be like alternating with Android 7.0. As a matter of fact, the notifications will include even more information than what was witnessed in Android 6.0, with more of the screen handed over to them.
Meanwhile, there will be quick settings options from the main notification menu and will not stasher away in their own drag-to-expand menu. This near the beginning leak as well advises that the rumour about the removal of Android’s app tray is baloney.
The Android N release date and availability
Google has announced that the dates for its next annual Google I/O show will take place from May 18 to May 20. This is where Google normally reveals its most recent version of Android, in order for you to put it in your diary that this is when the official lowdown on Android N will be released.
How about a Android N release date?
When it comes to Android, this is constantly a difficult thing to consider. We will be possibly looking at October or November, if we are strictly talking about when it will first be installed in a commercially available Smartphone.
Many of us could well have the best part of a year to wait before we get this latest development on our phones, while we will be witnessing what Android N can deliver in May 2016.
